take a/the redeye(redirected from take the red eye)
take a/the redeye
To take an overnight flight that arrives at its destination very early in the morning. Primarily heard in US. My original flight was canceled, so I took the redeye back to Philadelphia and got in at four in the morning. The only way we can fly on those dates and still stay within our budget is to fly from Denver to Chicago and then take a redeye to Seattle.
